Long time ago after reading Steve Yegge’s post on Effective Emacs I rebound C-w to ‘backward-kill-word and since then I’ve had the same key binding for both Emacs and BASH.
Now that Conkeror is my default browser it makes sense to have C-w to work the same way as in Emacs and BASH.
This is a snippet that I’ve added to my ~/.conkerorrc
define_key(text_keymap, 'C-w', 'cmd_deleteWordBackward');
Now I have a uniform key binding across my tools.
